It may be a reaction to Apple's policy not some vast music label conspiracy to bring down Apple.

    YEah?- provided you pay even more for this privelege.



    I'm talking the DRM files which most people buy for 99cents. What other devices play those files?



    Teckstud you really need to stop talking so much and listen much more.



    You probably weren't paying attention to Apple news when they were battling the record labels a couple of years back. But this is all common knowledge.



    The record labels want Apple to allow them to charge a premium for their most popular music artists. To make up for the loss in CD sales. Apple did not agree to this and continues to sell all songs for .99.



    The music labels want to break Apples hold on music downloads so they can force Apple to renegotiate and sell music for whatever price they choose. Steve Jobs wrote a public letter saying he thought music DRM is a bad idea. He would prefer iTunes sold all music with no DRM, but the record labels won't allow it.



    When EMI first agreed to sell DRM-less music, iTunes plus was $1.99 for no DRM and higher bit rate. After other music services begun to sell DRM free music iTunes Plus was lowered to .99 like every other song.

    Minor quibble, iTunes+ was $1.29.
